Fairy Tale Friday

Teddy Bo Towers is just 20 miles away from the City of Glasgow, and in 2014 it will host the Commonwealth Games. Now after the Olympics in London, the girls were so excited that they tried out a number of sports (unsuccessfully), and failed to represent their countries at the Olympics.
One of the big successes in London were the volunteers, and now Glasgow has asked for volunteers to help with the athletes and the general public when the games are running. With the deadline for applications approaching rapidly (28th February 2013), the girls shoved the tables in the main room together, and sat down to complete the forms.
Now ‘Crafting People’ are creative people, they don’t 'do' forms. In fact it’s just as well Gayle suggested they photocopied their forms first. Especially when Donna was completing her form and the box said ‘Sex’, and in the next box she wrote ‘Yes Please’. However things picked up, and the form filling was going well until they all got to the question about what volunteer tasks they would like to carry out during the event.
Donna was first, desperate to make up for her failing at the ‘Sex’ section of the document. “I want to help the athletes in and out of their clothes”, she said. The male ones only though.  Maritha said “I’ll work in the Food Service section. Should be great for getting free beer and buns”.
At this point Colette jumped up and down excitedly, “I want to do the logo for the games, their logo’s not very nice, it’s just a big green coloured ‘G’ with circles around it” ( however, Gayle took her to the side and mentioned that they had already spent lots of money with lots of consultants designing the logo, and it’s unlikely that they’d change it.
Claire wrote down that she wanted to knit tracksuits for the athletes, and even some scarves for the athletes coming from warmer climates. She's got such a good, kind heart.
Gayle wrote on her application that she wanted to be involved in catering. She intended to bring her Haggis, Brussels Sprouts and Cranberry flan. A full meal with the three of the main food types, meat, vegtables and fruit.
And so the applications were sent off.
The girls all wait with baited breath to see if they'll be successful!!!!!

While we wait to hear back from the organisers the girls have been busy making more cards..x
